MOSCOW (10-1-03) - University of Idaho Sophomore fullback Keith Greer, who developed Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome following surgery on Aug 31 to repair his broken right leg, continues to improve and was released Tuesday from Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.

University of Idaho football player Keith Greer is going home.
Greer was released from Harborview Medical Center on Tuesday after a month in the Seattle hospital. Greer developed Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome following surgery on Aug. 31 to repair his broken right leg.
"He's doing very well," Vandals coach Tom Cable said. "He's up and around, he's a little slow in terms of motor skills, but they expect a 100 percent full recovery. That's just great news."
Greer will return to the family home in Santa Ana, Calif., to continue recuperating. The sophomore fullback withdrew from school because of the extended hospital stay, but he plans to return to UI in January.
He also hopes to continue his playing career.
"He wants to play," Cable said. "You have to know Keith. He looks at this as a bad deal, get a little rehab at home, get his lungs straightened up and come back in January and get into (off-season) mat drills."
Greer, 19, broke his tibia and fibula against Washington State on Aug. 30. Following surgery, he was in the intensive care unit for more than three weeks, including roughly 10 days in critical condition. He was taken out of the ICU last Tuesday.
Greer had three catches for 20 yards before he was injured in the season opener against WSU.
